What permissions do the different roles have in Quickbooks Go Payments?

There is a link Mobile Payments Role when you set up a user that makes you think that the permissions will be defined, but the link takes you to how to add a user instead of giveing a role description.


Hi lmeer,

At this time, defining a specific permission to a user is unavailable. Though, the general user's information will show up once you assign a role to a user.  Let me provide you the overview in bullets. 

  • Full Admin. Can access to any page or feature available to the account. Can manage users, change access permissions, and edit account information and settings. Can create additional accounts and turn services on or off. Only the Full Admin and Accountant roles can access tax documents.
  • Limited Admin. Can manage users and change access permissions, except users in the Full Admin role. Can't add accounts or services.
  • Full User. Can access payment processing features, reporting screens, and statements. Can't view account management pages.
  • No Access. Can't even sign into the merchant service center and has no access to this site.

You can also make changes on the Users page.

I have here an article for information: Add A User to A QuickBooks Payments Account.

Let us know if you need anything else. I'd be here to help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
